hatched April or may 2011 one laid an egg today, too close to the pond so I picked her up and toted her and the egg back up to the house in a pen (12x15 ft) put her some straw in the pen and some moss and laid the egg in the straw , she covered up the egg with the straw and left it alone so far . How long should I leave it or is the first few even worth trying to let them hatch ?
My geese can't count

I left the geese closed up for a few days after seeing preditors around the pond ,, they laid another egg , I collected it for the house . Then I gave them some turkey chow and put some hay in 1 of the 3 pens they have access to , today found where they made a nest are laying to it then covering up the 3 eggs and leaving ,,are they waiting for enough eggs to set ??
I took care of the preditors for now , but more will show up ,, it's winter . thinking about just leaving the geese penned for now .
They have over 500 sq ft of space and with corn turky chow and hay they should be ok .
